QFES continues to enforce strict fire ban across the region

QUEENSLAND Rural Fire Service have issued a fire ban across different areas of the state.

On the South Burnett Regional Council's website it says the lighting of fires in open spaces is currently prohibited until midnight Sunday, September 15.

The fire ban has been in place since Sunday, September 8, in Cherbourg and the South Burnett region.

All permits to light fire previously issued in the local fire ban area have been cancelled.

Fires within a properly constructed barbecue are permitted, provided they are not left unattended.

Power tools including lawn mowers and mechanical slashers may be used with extreme care and adequate equipment is available to extinguish any fire that may start.
